What is Biomimicry?

Biomimicry is a design approach and innovation methodology that studies how organisms in nature solve problems (i.e. the bees in your backyard, a plant in a rain forest, a lizard in the desert, etc.) and then applies those same natural strategies to developing solutions to the similar challenges we face every day at the human scale.

Hope Inspired By Nature

We live in a world of immeasurable uncertainty. Environmental catastrophes seem to be increasing, war and poverty feel omnipresent, and economic instability around the globe casts a shadow of cynicism and pessimism that seems unconquerable. The amount of ‘bad news’ in our world right can make one feel as if we will never figure out how to solve all of the problems we are currently facing as a society. It’s easy to fear and doubt in these times. And yet, never in my life has one word given me so much hope as to believe we, humankind, can solve all of the problems ailing our society and the planet. Biomimicry is that hope for me.

The bees in that bee hive you see walk past on your way home just might have insights on how to run your startup more efficiently. This very notion is what makes me optimistic about our future, it also highlights the unknown value of the natural world around us.

Humans practicing biomimicry can trace all the way back to ancient civilizations seeing a spider’s web and imitating that strategy to create nets for catching fish. Additionally, in 1800 early Hispanic settlers of the San Luis Valley in Colorado were discovered to have emulated how the thickness of Colombian ground squirrels’ burrows in order to properly insulate their adobe homes. How dope is that?!

We live in world of great uncertainty and change… Luckily, we have mentors just outside our window that can help us with navigating this changing world around us, we just have to seek them out. Biomimetic solutions are everywhere nature can be found; which means our problems have solutions everywhere nature exists. Hope grows everywhere there is a solution to a problem. Hope springs eternal where Biomimicry exist. When I look outside my window, I feel very hopeful... and so should you.
